After Engine shuts down hot engine oil is introduced into combustion chamber either by weak or bad cylinder head valve seals or weak or bad engine piston rings. As vehicle sits overnight and vehicle is started excess engine oil in combustion chamber is burned causing blue smoke. Your local repair shop or dealer should perform a diagnostic of your engine to determine overall condition.
